18,087 Christine Nystrom, The Gens of Culture, Towards a Theoru of Symbols, Meaning and Media Vol 1

The first posthumous collection of work by Christine Nystrom, The Genes of
Culture, Towards a Theory of Symbols, Meaning, and Media, Vol. 1, edited by
Carolyn Wiebe and Susan Maushart, was recently published by Peter Lang as
the latest addition to my Understanding Media Ecology book series. Here is
the blurb:

Christine L. Nystrom?s provocative work offers up a fresh approach to
ongoing?and increasingly urgent?questions about the role of symbols and
technology in shaping human experience. In lucid, lively, and
always-accessible prose, she examines an eclectic range of topics?from Hopi
grammar to the etiquette of beach-going to the primal allure of the horror
film?to uncover the principles that structure the way we make meaning of
our world. A cross-disciplinary tour de force, The Genes of Culture
integrates insights from philosophy, the physical sciences, social
psychology, and cultural criticism to pose challenging questions for
today?s students of media. This book is an exemplary foundation reader for
graduates or undergraduates in communication and media studies.
